Jayla Siciliano, an entrepreneur responsible for Bon Affair, decided to seek an investment from Shank Tank in exchange for a percent of her company. She started adding soda water to her wine to socialize longer and she would feel better the next morning.

Simply stash your kayak in the closet or under your bed until the next time the wilderness calls.
